Russia to invest in production of newer fabrics

The Government of Russia is planning to invest over US$ 20 million in a major project aimed at large-scale production of new type of fabrics.
 
Under the project, about 10 major Russian research institutes will share their latest innovations in fabrics, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, which is implementing the project, said.
 
Russian textile engineers have developed a technique of implantation of metal nanoparticles, including silver particles, in fabrics. This provides the fabrics with anti-bacterial properties.
 
They have also developed a fibre, combining modified wool fibre technology with non-equilibrium low-temperature plasma, which has abrasion resistance, in addition to water repellent, soil repellent, anti-bacterial and other properties.
 
The project would stress on creating different types of fibrous materials from short flax fibre.
 
It would also aim to develop modern mixed fabrics and fine woolen fabrics with different content of synthetic and natural yarns and fibres.
 
It involves developing semi-woolen fabric that can be used in stitching different kinds of garments for men, women and children.
 
The new fabrics, developed under the project, will be used in making corporate wear, work wear and school uniforms, the Ministry said.
 
For work wear, the Ministry plans to design fabrics by giving them a special coating and adding a protective layer to keep the workers warm.
 
The new fabrics will also be used for making premium men’s suits. The Ministry expects such suits to be in high demand as their quality will match Western standards but it will be available at much lower price.
 
The Ministry is also considering a possibility of using new fabrics for manufacturing of home textiles, owing to their good thermal insulation properties and the property of not getting deformed easily.
 
There is also a possibility of using the new innovative fabrics for making men’s and women’s innerwear, the Ministry said.
 
Much of the production of newer fabrics is likely to be undertaken at the Bryansk Worsted Mill, one of the largest special and technical textiles manufacturers in Russia.
 
The successful implementation of the project will enhance the competitiveness of Russian clothing, especially in the local market.
 
The project is being launched in view of Russia’s recent accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), which is expected to boost imports of fabrics and apparels over the next few years.
